as sequestration take effect at the beginning of march. the pentagon has to reduce spending by $46 billion in the remaining seven months of fiscal year 2013. >> if these cuts happen there will be a serious disruption in defense programs and a sharp decline in our military readiness. >> reporter: this army document says three-fourths of its combat brigades will have to delay their training for several months resulting in a failure to meet demands of the national military strategy by the end of this year. afraid it will have to take $18 billion out of its own budget the army has already stopped maintenance of 1,300 vehicles and 17,000 weapons. according to this document the air force would cut its overhauls of aircraft by one-third, with the result that some planes would have to be grounded. flying hours for air force pilots would be cut by 18%. >> it puts at risk our fundamental mission of protecting the american people. >> reporter: combat operations in afghanistan would not be affected by the cuts but the pull-out of $20 billion worth of equipment could be delaye
to go into effect. they would give the pentagon more wiggle room to do something about it to shift money and around invite the white house's own ideas. that will be defeated as well as a democratic plan. the budgetary office found this would increase by a small amount over ten years. everybody is gonna leave town. i don't think congress will be in session tomorrow, on friday, the day these cuts go into effect. everybody will be pointing the finger. already we're talking more about what's going to happen next. for example, the house republicans next weekend may move a bill that basically keeples the automatic cuts in place and -- keeps the automatic cuts in place and gives the pentagon more leeway to shift around money and then moves forward at that lower level of funding for what's called the discretionary budget, tori. >> the president will be meeting with the republican congressional leaders tomorrow for the first time on this topic. why the wait? why wait until after the deadline? why didn't they meet before? >> it's it's sort of a logical question. when the meeting with the congressi
about their capabilities and potentially u.s. vulnerabilities. let's bring in our pentagon correspondent barbara starr. she's investigating what is going on. what are you finding out, barbara? >> so far, wolf, u.s. officials aren't saying much about this. so the question is, is it iran showing the capabilities of one of the u.s.'s most secret spy airplanes? iran claims this is classified video from a u.s. spy drone. >> this aircraft has had many flights in countries around iran. in operations that have taken place in pakistan, this aircraft has provided guidance. >> u.s. officials are trying to figure out what exactly iran has in hand. in washington thursday, defense secretary leon panetta wasn't talking. >> did iran hack our drone, mr. secretary? >> most alarming will be if iran's claim is true that it dekripted a video from one of america's most secret aircraft. >> looking at the video, it certainly seems to be genuine but i think it's a give away that you can see that the video in places is masked by what looked like frames in a glass cover. >> since it captured in the drone in 2011,
to some of the employees, civilian employees of the pentagon and some other places. the 85 billion in cuts is through the rest of the fiscal year through september 30th and we're not even talking a full year. it's 50/50 between the defense cuts and the discretionary am doestic spending cuts and the warnings that we're hearing from experts on national security are very severe and vehement. they have told us that this will be a very significant damage. >> let's put the list up here, alex. the white house put out this fact sheet yesterday on the most damaging effects of the cuts that are supposed to go into effect march 1st. 17,000 education jobs at risk. 70,000 kids being kicked off head start. nearly 400,000 mentally ill patients not receiving health care and small business loan guarantees being cut up to $540 million, roughly. the white house did not mention the massive military cuts. what was the strategy there? >> well, look. i think that for the white house, the strategy here is to emphasize that basically every american would be impacted in some way. if you emphasize defense cuts and i

good-bye for leon panetta. the pentagon sends the boss off with a formal ceremony happening today, even though he is likely to be on the job for at least another couple of weeks. panetta spoke yesterday before congress, said there will always an debate over how much military power to put around the world. >> united states military, as i've said, is not and frankly should not be a 911 service capable of arriving on the scene within minutes to every possible contingency around the world. u.s. military has neither the resources nor the responsibility to have a firehouse next to every u.s. facility in the world. >> former senator chuck hagel has been nominated to replace panetta. that confirmation vote continues and has been postponed. >>> a look at this massive crowd that filled the streets in tunisia. this was a public funeral of an opposition leader shot dead outside his home wednesday. thousands of grieving and angry folks marching with his coffin to a cemetery. many believe it was a political assassination. riot police have violently put down several public demonstrations since that sh

to severe cuts to the pentagon. you see just four states there including georgia and virginia which could lose more than 100,000 jobs each over the next ten years. cuts in grants to the states could lead to big reductions in food aid to the poor, low income energy assistance, child care and development and other social services as well. and really this is only the start. again, ten days left at this point. >>> now, we want to bring you some of the hottest stories of the day in a flash. we're keeping an eye on the jodi areas trial. she admits to the gruesome killing of travis alexander. late this morning her attorney began to lead arias through the weeks before the brutal killing. arias read an angry text from travis about a drawing that he had done which she left behind. >> imagine if i did that to you with something you gave me. give me a pardon from any madness. i don't need it. it's wearing me out and if it continues, just like i have to give you motivation to tell me the truth, i'll give you motivation to quit screwing with me. >> arias has given multiple versions of the killings. she
to be furloughs at the pentagon, the pay increases for the troops will not be as large as he would like, and then the president today added on to them, said, look, this is going to affect seniors, food safety, the poor. so what they are setting themselves up for is really this argument they are set to have and i think we're going to hear from the state of the union, over these automatic spending cuts that are due to take effect. the president is saying, we cannot let this occur and he's ready to clearly have that fight with republicans on this. >> panetta leaving office with an extraordinary acknowledgement that the defense department, the cia, state department, all of them recommended to the president that the u.s. should start arming, directly arming syrian rebels but the president decided that was not necessarily a good idea. that's pretty extraordinary. >> it was extraordinary. he was asked about it at a congressional hearing. what is interesting to me is someone who covers washington, it's not that there is disagreement at certain points over policy between the secretary of defense
